It's not just 'quite a bit' it is all of gnumeric.   The actual
gnumeric wrapper is actually pretty trivial.

Is there any way in which libspreadsheet can be used to build a
standalone spreadsheet application ? I noticed wbc-gtk.h, but it seems
to return a already realized window, with toolbars and everything. Is
there something that I'm missing ?

WorkbookControl the abstract base is meant to be the interface from
the non-gui core out to the display.   it's derived form,
WorkbookControlGtk, is meant to manage a gtk front end.  However,
there is a fair amount of functionality built into wbcg.   All of
the menu actions and such.  Pulling that apart would take a fair
amount of work.   Would it be sufficient to use a simplified xml
file to build a smaller UI ?

You mean that by replacing the gtk builder file we could be left with
only the workbook widget on the top level window??
